Dancesport (Latin and Ballroom) Team

  • resizeimage


Fancy yourself as a contestant on Strictly? Join the Dancesport Team!


You don’t need any prior experience. You don’t even need to bring a partner.


We cater for all levels - from complete beginners to experienced dancers.


You’ll be able to try Latin American and Ballroom dance, taught by excellent teachers- who are 3rd in the UK in the 10 dance category!


The team regularly travels around the country competing against the best in Latin American and Ballroom Dance, with events culminating in a fabulous weekend at the Winter Gardens in Blackpool.


If you don’t want to compete, you don’t have to. We offer social classes where you can just come and dance.


But don’t be daunted – competitions have a fantastic atmosphere and offer great opportunities to meet people from other universities.


President  Amber Charalambous

Treasurer Claire Paddinson

Team Mascot? Of course! We are pleased to introduce you to Foxtrot. He is the most adorable fox you will meet and he wears a bow tie too (and he will lend his bow tie to anyone who needs it during any competition).



Summer Ball? Definitely! We host our annual ball at the Belmont Hotel for an evening of dancing and end of year celebrations.




See you at practice!
